Another one of Ralph's recommendations today...
Talk about being blown away. I had no idea what to expect from this new release but I should have known better. False Confession (https://www.facebook.com/falseconfession.hardcore) were one of my favorite bands from that 1984/Mystic Records era of California Punk Rock. They blended 100 MPH songs that are now called "D-Beat" with amazing PostPunk/Goth jams. It didn't hurt that they traded members with DR. KNOW, my ALL TIME favorite band from that era.
SO what does a band that haven't been together in over 35 years sound like? EXACTLY HOW THEY USED TOO! The first 7 songs are complete D-Beat/Modern Hardcore and they end the album with 2 amazing "Goth" style jams that made me love this band. If you've heard their old stuff - you'll LOVE this. If you're new to them - This album, titled Resurrectionists, will make you a fan. I LOVE when bands can come back and STILL write kick ass songs! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED my friends! ALL the original members - Israel, Fred, Harry and Ismael! Unbelievable that these guys can STILL bring something new into 2021! The "Old School" is STILL relevant!
Vinyl 12" LP available on Puke N Vomit Records and CD on Nothing But A Nightmare Records. For digital go here : https://falseconfession.bandcamp.com/
My pick off this album is one of the closers called "Mortal Coil". Showing this bands "Goth" side. Absolutely perfect!
INWARD BOUND WITH NO ESCAPE CANT MAKE A SOUND TO CRY FOR HELP NO ONE HEARS WHAT YOUVE SAID YOURE STUCK INSIDE YOUR WEARY HEAD DREAMS ARE JUST YOUR BEST NIGHTMARES GOOD AND EVIL UNACCEPTED DARES YOU LOOK BACK AT LIFE FORWARD TO DEATH THEY LAUGH AT YOU YOU JUST SIT AND CRY.
